-39% SALE! Garden Rue (Ruta Graveolens) 20 seeds (#1726)

Though technically considered an herb, rue has toxicity issues that render it strictly an ornamental garden plant rather than a utilitarian one. Originating from southern Europe and Southwest Asia, it is an evergreen subshrub that thrives in hot, dry climates. Mature specimens are bushy and have attractive, feathery, blue-green leaves. Historically, its bitter leaves were used to in Mediterranean cooking and to treat various ailments, but it is now known to be dangerous to ingest.
The small, waxy, green to blue-green leaves of rue are feathery and compound. They have strong-smelling surface oils that repel insects and can be irritating to the skin. In early or midsummer, clusters of yellow-green flowers are produced. These are marginally showy and attract bees.
Full sun is needed for bushy growth and best appearance. Established plants are resilient to hot, dry weather. Soil should be well-drained with average to poor fertility. The stems of older specimens become woody and can be pruned back to keep plants smaller and bushier. Always wear protective gloves when handling rue and wash any skin exposed to the leaves or stems. The leaves of rue are phytophototoxic, meaning sun exposure worsens the effects of rue oil on the skin. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)
